"We wanted a more dream-like, vintage aesthetic [...] It might as well of been shot on film."Matt Perren, "EGO"DoP/Camera operator
"The optics are fantastically sharp for anamorphic lenses but for this particular project we wanted a more dream like, vintage aesthetic. We combined the lenses with front and rear element netting. This resulted in the lenses 'modern perfection' being completely distorted into something that was now completely unique and analogue. It might as well of been shot on film."

Behind the Scenes: Making of “Find Your Path”


"Overall, I couldn't say enough about the Orion Series."

— Tennyson Tanner, DP, "Find Your Path"

"We have had the interest in filming with Orion Anamorphics after several projects using the Cooke T2.3 Anamorphics and wanted to get a feel for their look. Overall, I couldn't say enough about the Orion series as we have used them on several shoots to date. The amount of Bokeh, slight chromatic aberrations and solid build are quite pleasing to the eye and touch. Looking forward to many more shoots with these lenses."

"We wanted to work with Atlas lenses because we wanted the viewer to have a real cinematic experience. These lenses have great character, almost vintage like, but with all the benefits of modern engineering: sharp but not too sharp and a solid housing."
